Finished my new old cb antenna mount and ran the wire through the brake light harness grommet. Also laid down a third coat of bed liner. Here's pics of the antenna.

finally got around to trimming the front bumper, and pulled the throttle body and cleaned it. I also opened up the airbox to get more air flow. Everything seems to have made a difference idling smoother and better throttle response.

Wheres this Royal Blue? Never heard of it but always looking for new parks. Is it actually a park or just a few trails? We are about 4-5 hours away from Windrock TN and Aetna mtn which both of them were great.

Up I-75 towards Kentucky. Exit 141. Heading north, there's trails on the right side of the interstate. I'd say easy moderate trails compared to Windrock, alot like 2 and 22. On the left side of the interstate a good ride is up to the sandmines which is a moderate to difficult trail, depending on the weather. It's a Wildlife Management Area. There are alot of trails and you can find a map online. What I like about Royal Blue is you only need 1 hunting/fishing license or land use permit per vehicle. Way cheaper than Windrock.
Here's a couple pics from up top.

Kevin's Safari Roof Rack

It was making some wind noise at around 60mph until I filled in some welds, now it's completely silent.

Drove it back from Rochester to home, and got 20.2 mpg (with the cruise set at 60 and no drafting). First long highway run I've done without major wind (just a bit at the beginning, and a mild tailwind for a few minutes between 2 big hills later on) since the engine mods. I can definitively say, camming the 5.9 helped the highway mileage.

Only time I've ever done better than this was one run of 21.3 mpg, cruise set at 58, doing a decent bit of drafting, and with a light tailwind the whole time (engine was stock then).
